South Bend welcomes some of the best and brightest young computer minds to town for a one-year fellowship, beginning Thursday.
Reed Duecy Gibbs, Dave Guarino, and Tamara Manik-Perlman will help the city with technology projects through the year, including the development of a 311 phone line.

South bend is one of nine cities chosen to take part in the program.
Some examples of projects code fellows have completed in the past include a web product to track school buses in real time in Boston. They’ve also created a program to see exactly how local sales tax dollars were being spent.
The goal of the fellows for South Bend is to make government more efficient and transparent.
